New Standards Authority boss resigns

The newly appointed Director of the Ghana Standards Authority Dr. Addai-Mensah Otchere has resigned from the position.

It is unclear why Dr. Otchere, who was appointed last week – March 7, 2017 – by President Akufo-Addo, left the post, but sources say he was pressured to resign.

Sources say the Presidency was being compelled to revoke his appointment by party members because of some harsh comments he allegedly made about the governing party while they were in opposition.

The former acting Dean of the Faculty of Allied Health Sciences at the KNUST was reportedly invited by the president over the claims and urged to be cautious of his utterances.

He however decided to leave the post after meeting the President.
